5 Dating Apps to meet your Potential Soulmate

5 Dating Apps to Try now and start dating!

You have to date, to meet someone and to eventually spend your life with them right? But what happens when you are a busy mother who does not have time to go to the bars or the parties to meet people like you used to? the answer is online dating! Online is great for single mothers, shy people, introverts, or just those you have no time like that to out. All of the suggested apps are free and you can start/sign up immediately! Lets find some looovee!

Disclaimer: ALWAYS make sure to practice safe online dating practices! 

  1. POF(plenty of fish): I have had Pof since freshmen year of college and it is so fun. There are filters when you are searching for someone so you can get exactly what you’re looking for. There filters ask in what salary range you want the person to be, height, race, how close you want them to be and so forth. Pof can be used to find a fling, a lil boo thang or a serious relationship. I have even made some cool friends off there.


  1. Bumble: Now this app I like to say is more for the well of people. The ones with college educations, business owners, full careers, house owners. If you are an established person, I recommend this app. You will have to use your facebook profile, however, to log in and a lot of people do not want to do that, so just a heads up. You can upload pictures, write a short description and swipe left or right for the people who show up on your feed. The big twist about bumble is that if you match with a guy, the WOMAN HAS TO SEND THE FIRST MESSAGE! I’m not sure what they were trying to achieve with that but that is how it goes. Also, messages expire if no one talks.


  1. Tinder: Okay we all know about tinder but it can be used to find a really nice person! It is all about weeding out the phonies and the users. Make it clear what you are looking for in your description. On tinder, you also have the swipe left or right option. Don’t be afraid to step out of your boundaries. Tinder is really straight to the point and they also have filters as well! For tinder, you also have to use your Facebook profile to log in.


  1. Facebook: Yes I went there, I said facebook. Facebook has so many dating groups that you can be part of! I was in one before and ended up dating someone for a short time but it was good while it lasted. Ladies I know there are men in your inbox waiting for a reply from you. Answer them! You never know what could happen with a that. Even if he doesn’t become your boyfriend you can friend zone him and turn him into your “Food Bae” *insert evil smile* every girl needs to eat right? Most likely you are already on Facebook so there is no need to set up a profile and do all those little details. When you are in a dating group search for your locations to see if anybody lives nearby. Once you find a potential candidate, send a “HI” and shoot your shot!



  1. Instagram: It goes down in the DM ayyee! Yea Instagram is great for meeting someone because people usually post their best pictures lmao. The big con is that you do not know all their info off the bat. You have to DM them and get to know them then get their personal information. Instagram, however, is the perfect place to see a little more of their personality. Peale post where they go, what they’re doing, who they are seeing, etc.               Have any of you ladies tried online dating? How did it go? Comment Below!!

    I met my husband through online dating, and Match.com, so I can vouch that it works. I’ve also tried POF back in the day.

    I dabbled in some online dating years ago and didn’t find a love connection, but it’s still a great way to meet people if you’re looking for dates!

    As someone who has been out of the “dating game” for a long time, these apps were not around when I was dating. It seems like a great way to weed through all the people out there and try and meet someone you connect with.

    I totally agree with Facebook. All social medias really. I love this! ❤️ And I love your blog layout

  5. March 6, 2018 / 10:50 pm

    This is great!

    One of my friends actually met her husband on Plenty of Fish!

    I have heard a little about Bumble….but I may have to check that out some more. And I have never thought about Facebook. Let me check that also.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Great blog! I have read few Tinder love stories who are now married. This online dating is very helpful to those who are busy. Thanks for sharing ♥️ ♥️ By any chance you are interested on doing collaborations, you can connect with amazing brands and fellow bloggers through the influencer directory of Phlanx.com!

    This is so funny because I actually met my husband on Myspace. Yet, I can’t imagine making a love connection on instagram. It’s so funny how social media has opened up the world of dating. I really think it has expanded horizons (my brother met his wife on AOL- back before there even were dating apps!! and she was across the country…now they both are).

  8. March 7, 2018 / 10:31 am

    I have not been in the dating game in a very long time, but I can see how these apps could be super helpful! Have a few single friends, and I am going to pass this info along to them!

  9. March 7, 2018 / 10:40 am

    This is very interesting! I’ve never tried dating apps, but I do see that a lot of people use them. Such great wealth of information!

    I have a friend who met her boyfriend on a dating site and they’re so great together! I never used an online dating site or app but they seem to be very helpful.

  11. March 7, 2018 / 10:57 pm

    I already have my soulmate. I’ve been married to him for 7 years. 🙂

  12. March 8, 2018 / 9:50 am

    Sounds interesting ! Would definitely recommend to my friends who are single 🙂

    I am off the market and have been married for 23 years now, but I have a 21 y old who is busy and single, I will share with her.

  14. March 13, 2018 / 10:59 pm

    Man, I wouldn’t even know where to begin if I had to start dating again! I had a hard time when I was dating because you never know what you’re going to run into depending on where you go. So I can see how this would make things SO much easier!

  15. March 14, 2018 / 11:40 am

    Well I have been on about 4 dating sites over the years but then i just came off i reached to the point where i could not be bothered anymore. I didnt think it was worth it in the end seen as i live in the Caribbean and most live in different parts of t he worls

  16. March 14, 2018 / 10:16 pm

    I find it so interesting to see how dating has changed with social media and all of the apps that are now available.

  17. March 16, 2018 / 4:25 pm

    I’ve never used apps to find my soulmate but I know people who did do it’s possible:)

    I’m so scared to even think about online dating lol but maybe I’ll get the courage one day. Great post!

    Great info! Very interesting indeed

  20. April 3, 2018 / 4:41 pm

    I never thought about instagram for dating and I hear so many bad things about tinder. I’m glad i’m in a relationship already and don’t have to deal with dating anymore xd

  21. April 3, 2018 / 6:48 pm

    These are all great! I will have to pass these along to my cousin, he is single and looking and is having trouble finding people to connect with due to his busy schedule and job! I love that you listed Instagram, I never would have thought of that!

    These are great suggestions! I’ve used all except for Facebook and Instagram (although many have DMed me, they’re usually two decades older than me or live too far away). I’m currently using an app called Clover, but am thinking about trying Tinder again..I’m beginning to think it’s less about the apps people use and more how how you use them.

  23. April 13, 2018 / 7:15 am

    Bumble is most definitely my go to! I never knew about Facebook and Instagram as dating options though lol. I need to do better with finding these dating groups that you speak of!!

  24. May 8, 2018 / 2:49 pm

    My husband and I did a lot of chatting via Facebook before we ever started dating. It is truly amazing how social media can bring people together!

  25. May 8, 2018 / 3:37 pm

    Great list! I’ve heard of POF, and Tinder, but I had no idea that Facebook had dating groups! That’s pretty cool.

  26. May 9, 2018 / 12:44 am

    well i am not single but these are some great programs to help others! I love how it helps bring people together!

  27. May 9, 2018 / 2:03 am

    I wish I had this list when I was single 😜

  28. May 9, 2018 / 3:12 pm

    I never thought of FB or Instagram, but I guess it makes sense. I do know someone who met her husband on Plenty of Fish.

  29. May 9, 2018 / 11:56 pm

    Awesome apps. I bet these are super helpful for dating.

  30. May 10, 2018 / 8:57 am

    FB and IG are great suggestions! I have a friend who swears by tinder. She moves a lot and has found great relationships!

  31. May 17, 2018 / 2:55 pm

    Awesome post!
    I met my ex-husband on tinder but he is my ex so….
